I’ve always had an issue with people who say “prove it” to me. I don’t feel the need to prove anything to anyone ever. I don’t owe anyone anything, least of all proof of my existence or of who I am. I’ve always been an extremely private person. I know it stems from my childhood and I like it about myself. It’s a trait that’s kept me safe all my life. I will say though that it’s narrowed my group of friends substantially.
When I start a friendship and even throughout my friendships I never ask for anything, never. It’s just a rule of mine. I don’t even know my friends birthdays or middle names because I don’t ask for anything. I don’t like to be challenged, I don’t like to be put in a corner. I’m very non-confrontational. I prefer to let you think you’re right about everything and just walk away, I get hurt less this way.
My proof of life is waking up every morning. I don’t owe anyone anything.
